Join us for an evening of glamour and styling as David Dorling (of the House of Drewvid) shows you how to recreate authentic 1930s hairstyles.
David Dorling will demonstrate signature looks from the 1930s, a time when short hair was still in vogue from the previous decade but softer, more feminine styles were also coming back in to fashion. There will also be a chance at the end to get answers to any of the vintage hairstyling questions you’ve had burning away. So if you want to learn your setting pattern from your shingling or your pomade from your pompadour, this is a masterclass you cannot miss!
David Dorling (along with husband Andrew Simonin) are collectively known as the House of Drewvid, and have combined experience of over 20 years in the British TV, film and theatre industry. Previous big screen credits include Florence Foster Jenkins, Madonna’s W.E. and the Star Wars sequels, as well as Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera and Hairspray on the West End stage. In addition to their film work, they founded the House of Drewvid in 2009 and offer a variety of cutting and styling services from their home studio as well as developing their own range of styling products.
The event starts at 6pm with a glass of wine in the Museum foyer and opportunity to view the current exhibition. The masterclass follows at 6.15pm for 6.20pm in the Fashion Studio and lasts for approximately one hour including an opportunity to ask questions. Ticket includes admission to the exhibition and guests are welcome to view this before or after the masterclass.
